I’m not sure I’d pay over Â£800 for one, especially one that has a mark on the lid like that one has. It will be interesting to see if anyone is willing to pay that much! Reply The seller doesn’t expect anyone to buy it for that much… thats why theres a best offer option. Reply Uh…not new in box. I see pictures of not only the box open, and everything taken out of the box, *and* out of their plastic, but even plugged in playing a game! If it ever truly was “new in box”, that ad took away all the value from that. A true “NIB” device wouldn’t need to be tested to see if it worked, and a smart seller would use pictures of other devices so he wouldn’t have to ruin the value of the one he’s selling (and it’s not 1/200, it’s 141/200) Reply I don’t really see how overpricing the console will help to prevent a zero feedback buyer from hitting the BIN button and holding the console to “ransom” anyway. Surely they can still hit the BIN button even if it’s priced at Â£100,000? Perhaps it’s a psychological thing, people see $5000 and feel they need to make an offer closer to that figure! 🙂 Reply I was just going to have a rant about the seller not advertising the product as NIB himself, but he clearly states the item is “new and unused” in the auction despite showing it in a used state. D’oh! This is exactly why the only item condition I go for is “brand new factory sealed”. That way you know nobody has tampered with your item. Granted, you do end up paying through the nose for the privilege but that’s the way the system works unfortunately. Reply Perhaps many of you forgot the language barrier that occurs on eBay very often. The seller is from Japan and even though he comes across as being very good with the English language there will always be mistakes in translation. Also maybe the whole unit is unused and new, but the coniditon of the box is garbage after holding onto it so many years. 🙂 Reply I think you HAVE to open this up to see if you have the STARS version. You wouldn’t know what version you had or what # you had without opening it up. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
